Talk:Extension development

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

I found this page relatively hard to find. Maybe a link should be created on the http://update.mozilla.org/extensions/ site, to lead developers to this page?

We have no control for u.m.o pages. If you think it should be linked from there, go file a bug in bugzilla.mozilla.org (mozilla.org product). This page is linked from FAQs on MozillaZine's Extensions forum. Asqueella 08:25, 30 Oct 2004 (PDT)

That differential inheritance link looks a bit out of place, doesn’t it! Perhaps we need a subsection called 'Techniques' (or similar) underneath 'Example code'. This would be a good place for technical articles which don’t necessarily contain a lot of code.

Well, most of links there look out of place. I'd rather not create a new section with a single link in it. We may do it, once we have more "Techniques" articles. Asqueella 12:14, 13 Nov 2004 (PST)
fair enough, please feel free to move it back to where it was. Though I don't think the "Techniques" section of the Example Code article looks strange, despite only having one link! I think the most important thing is putting links in the places that people are most likely to look; usually the "Miscellaneous links" section at the bottom of most pages on the Web just contains stuff that's related but not too relevant; I wouldn't expect to find specific, relevant links there. (It's just occured to me that, in my first comment, perhaps I wasn't clear enough about what "Example Code" section I was talking about. I meant the actual Example Code article, not the subsection on this Extensions page.)
I thought you meant Dev : Extensions page subsection. You're right it makes much more sense in Example Code page. Asqueella 04:29, 14 Nov 2004 (PST)
